Good morning. Wow! Those storms that went through the area sure left a lot of rain and hail. I hope people did not have to much damage to their properties. We just got rain here at the farm but it sure was a lot! I just want to remind people to pay attention to the weather. We want you to be safe out there on the lakes. Lets make sure this is a safe vacation season!
Does anyone out there have any old skirts that they no longer need? Or any fabric to make skirts? We are holding a class at the 1st Medicines Conference and are in need of fabric, elastic, or skirts that are no longer wanted. Any sizes would be welcome. Thank you in advance.
